Başlık/Titre/Title: Exploring the frontier of mathematical reasoning with large language models
Özet/Résumé/Abstract: In mathematics, there are two distinct approaches to reasoning: informal inferences based on simple reasoning and formal derivations through stepbystep proofs. This centuriesold approach to mathematical reasoning has been revolutionized by the advent of computers and symbolic systems. Initially, symbolic systems were developed to construct proofs stepbystep based on formal derivations. Subsequently, with the advent of deep learning, particularly in the form of large language models, we were able to construct neural networkbased structures that, like humans, are capable of both inductive and deductive reasoning. It is important to note that both symbolic systems and deep learning systems, in their respective ways, have their own set of successes and failures. This presentation will examine the distinctions between symbolic systems and deep learningbased systems, with a focus on the capabilities of large language models in problem solving, theorem proving, mathematical reasoning, generating new conjectures, and their performance when used with agents. Additionally, it will explore the potential for integrating language models with formal systems and the benefits of this integration.

Başlık/Titre/Title: On Domination Number of Cayley Graphs
Özet/Résumé/Abstract: A dominating set of ? is a subset D of V , such that every vertex not in D is adjacent to at least one member of D . The domination number ?(?) is the minimum cardinality of a dominating set for ?. An efficient dominating set of ? is an independent subset D of V , such that every vertex not in D is adjacent to exactly one member of D . Observe that if D is an efficient dominating set of ?, then D is also minimum dominating set of ?. There are results on the domination number and finding efficient dominating sets (if exist) on circulant graphs for certain connection sets. Here I will talk about our results on oddregular circulant graphs and Cayley graphs on different groups by giving the exact domination number when possible or giving a meaningful bound.

Başlık/Titre/Title: How do fluids behave, numerical modelling, new fronts, and applications
Özet/Résumé/Abstract: Numerical modeling replaces the expensive laboratory experiments if not used parallel to those for developing any technology in science and engineering. Numerical models can be used to understand the behavior of fluids that are essential to our existence and heavily involved in cutting edge technology development. For deeper understanding of the air hence all aerospace industry, blood flowing through our veins or spacecrafts traveling to Mars accurate numerical modelling of fluids is vital. This is why technology developers have an unending need for more accurate, faster, and cheaper numerical techniques. The principal component of any numerical model is the partial differential equation that defines the physical phenomena of interest. A fundamental prerequisite for an accurate numerical solution is the generation of a highquality mesh. Nevertheless, despite continuously growing computer power, mesh generation can still be a challenging task that can easily account for large portions of the computational time. As a possible remedy to the mesh generation challenges, socalled cut discretization methods have gained much attention in recent years. In this talk we will first focus on the basics of fluid modelling and then discover the new fronts and exiting applications where fluids are involved.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Seismic Wave Propagation and Representation of Seismic Sources
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: In this talk, I will first focus on deriving the wave equation for an elastic medium, followed by a discussion on its Green's function solution, which incorporates the moment tensor representation of seismic sources. The moment tensor, which is a secondrank tensor, characterizes seismic sources by using the slip direction of an earthquake and the fault's normal. Moreover, the magnitude of an earthquake is proportionally related to the norm of moment tensor. The structure of the space of moment tensor will be explained, along with the elasticity tensor which is a critical component for the moment tensor's definition.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Datadriven learning of Lie groups
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: The main purpose of this talk is to propose a newly developed stochastic Monte Carlo (MC) linear solver for some largescale modeling problems that require special linear solvers due to the specific characteristics of these types of problems. The newly developed MC method offers an alternative to costly deterministic linear solvers, presenting advantages in computational time and complexity, including superior features such as parallelization capability. In this presentation, we propose employing the stochastic MC method for initial value problems with timedependent coefficients, resulting in a hybrid numericalstochastic approach that demonstrates superior efficiency compared to corresponding numerical methods. However, this method exhibits broad applicability to diverse classes of dynamic mathematical modeling problems, particularly at large scales. Additionally, we aim to explore integrating this method into the wellknown Adaptive NeuralFuzzy Inference System (ANFIS), thereby reducing computational complexity in computing the pseudoinverse matrix within the iterative least square estimator (LSE) submethod of the main ANFIS algorithm. It is known that the ANFIS method offers a powerful tool for data science analysis across various domains and applications such as predictive modeling, control systems, data fusion decisionmaking, and so on. Indeed, this method is a versatile tool, but its specific application depends on the data and problem at hand. In this research, we applied three classes of the newly modified ANFIS method, incorporating enhancements to their respective generating function structures. These models were utilized to forecast the daily prices of target fuel products using datasets sourced from the Thomson Reuters Eikon Refinitiv database.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Datadriven learning of Lie groups
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: Learning meaningful representations via deep neural networks has been an important challenge for computer vision tasks. Autoencoders have been among the most popular approaches as they are shown to enable socalled disentangled representations. Unfortunately, most autoencoderbased methods are built upon no or very little inductive biases and lack a theoretical foundation. This (ongoing) work aims to provide insights into how group theory could be beneficial for learning modular representations. Given objectcentric datasets, we show how to learn latent matrix Lie groups that model underlying transformations the objects undergo within an autoencoder framework. The resulting framework learns (almost perfectly) disentangled group actions on toy datasets.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Singular foliations and Lie algebroids
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: A singular (or Hermann) foliation on a smooth manifold M can be seen as a locally finitely generated subsheaf of the sheaf of vector fields on M closed under Lie bracket. We show that if this singular foliation admits a resolution consisting of sections of a graded vector bundle of finite type, then one can lift the Lie bracket of vector fields to a Lie algebroid structure on this resolution. The choices entering the construction of this Lie algebroid, including the chosen underlying resolution, are unique up to homotopy and, moreover, every other Lie algebroid inducing the same foliation or any of its subfoliations factorizes through it in an uptohomotopy unique manner. We thus call it the universal Lie algebroid of the singular foliation. For a real analytic or holomorphic singular foliation, it can be chosen, locally, to be a Lie nalgebroid for some finite n. We will show that this universal structure encodes several aspects of the geometry of the leaves of a singular foliation, and that it allows to extend to the singular context some notions (e.g. characteristic classes) until now only defined for regular foliations.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Singularities and Rearrangement of Knots Via (Co)amoebas
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: Amoebas (resp. Coamoebas) are the image of analytic subsets of the complex algebraic torus under the logarithmic map (resp. argument map) coordinatewise. In this talk, we open a way relating deformations of class of germs of complex algebraic plane curves diffeomorphisms to rearrangement of links. Indeed, we realize any torus link as the union of the onedimensional connected components of the set of critical values ??of the argument map restricted to a complex algebraic plane curve. This gives the first relationship between knot theory and coamoebas theory. Moreover, it gives an explicit description of the topology and geometry of links corresponding to singularities.

Başlık/Titre/Title: From Fourier series to asymptotics of characters : a glimpse into Lie theory
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: In 1822, the French mathematician and physicist Joseph Fourier published his seminal treatise Théorie analytique de la chaleur in which he introduced expansions of periodic functions and solved the heat equation on R. Since then, Fourier series and Fourier transforms have been used successfully and extensively in many areas of fundamental and applied sciences. Harmonic analysis aims to generalize Fourier analysis on topological spaces on which a group acts. Group actions lay at the confluences of Mathematics and Physics, their study is the purpose of representation theory of Lie groups. I will explain the ins and outs of Lie theory, and sketch a few of its many tremendous applications. In particular, I will describe how representation theory relates objects of different nature such as orbits, characters and Dirac operators. These recent results are based on joint work with Pavle Pandzi´c, David Vogan and Roger Zierau.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Algebraic Curves, Computer Algebra and Integrable Systems
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: Algebraic curves have significant applications in the study of the KadomtsevPetviashvili hierarchy, which is a universal integrable system that describes shallow water waves. The corresponding finitegenus solutions are expressed in terms of the Riemann theta function. The theta function degenerates as the curve becomes more singular, leading to soliton and rational solutions. These solutions, in turn, characterize the curves in the moduli space of abelian varieties, thus providing a solution to the Schottky problem. To better understand the bilateral connection, we explore various perspectives in computational algebraic geometry, including transcendental and combinatorial approaches, while also utilizing mathematical software. Our study yields new results and insights, along with future directions for research in this field.

For , let denote the th derivative of (the th Hasse derivative in case char ). Assume that for all the polynomial has a nontrivial common factor with . The Casas–Alvero conjecture asserts that, assuming char , there exists such that . If char, the conjecture is false in general. Let us write for the statement "The CasasAlvero conjecture holds for polynomials of degree over fields of characteristic ". The following equivalences are known for each : holds holds for some prime number holds for all but finitely many primes . A prime number is said to be a bad prime for if is false. In this talk we will discuss an approach to the conjecture that consists in first proving it for some small degree , compiling lists of bad and good primes for that and then deducing the conjecture for all the degrees of the form , where is a positive integer and a good prime for . At the end of the talk we will mention a recent result (joint with D. Schaub) that gives a long (but not exhaustive) list of good primes for each .

Başlık/Titre/Title: A theoretical and computational framework for upscaling epithelial subcellular dynamics to tissue mechanics
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: Recent observations across various species have revealed a rich phenomenology of epithelial mechanics arising from the activeviscoelasticity and turnover of the actomyosin cortex. However, a link between the subcellular cortical dynamics and the tissue scale response has been lacking in theoretical models of epithelia. For instance, in classical vertex models, a phenomenologically motivated work function governing the vertex dynamics (Alt et al, Philos. Trans. R. Soc. Lond., B, Biol. Sci., 2017) often lacks a direct connection to the microscopic subcellular physics. In this talk, I will present a new formalism, coined activegel tissue model (AGTM), which bridges the activegel models of the actomyosin cortex taking into account the active contractility of the cortex, the viscoelastic relaxation due network remodelling and the turnover of its constituents, with vertexlike models at a tissue scale. By solving the active gel on each of the curved faces of a 3D tissue, we show that this unified framework systematically links subcellular cortical dynamics with tissue mechanics, and ties to a common subcellular origin a number of seemingly disconnected dynamical tissue behaviours such as stress relaxation following stepstrain manoeuvres (Casares et al., Nat. Mat. 2015, Khalilgharibi et al, Nat. Phys., 2019), buckling and transient buckling upon compression (Wyatt et al, Nat. Mat., 2020), pulsatile contractions during Drosophila dorsal closure (Solon et al, Cell, 2009), spontaneous curling (Fouchard et al, PNAS, 2020) and active superelasticity (Latorre et al, Nature, 2018). This framework is compatible with more elaborate dynamical models of the cytoskeleton, of adhesion complexes and their interaction, and thus serves as a general background for combining more complex multispecies models accounting for regulatory networks and junctional rearrangements, potentially providing a mechanistic understanding of active nonlinear response of tissues with cell level resolution.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Indices of vector fields for mixed singularities
Özet/Résumé/Abstract: A mixed function is a real analytic function in the complex variables and their conjugates . In this talk we define an integer valued index for vector fields with isolated singularity at on real analytic varieties defined by mixed functions with isolated critical point at . We call this index the mixed GSVindex and it generalizes the classical GSVindex defined by GomezMont, Seade and Verjovsky, i.e., if the function is holomorphic, then the mixed GSVindex coincides with the GSVindex. Furthermore, the mixed GSVindex is a lifting to of the valued real GSVindex defined by Aguilar, Seade and Verjovsky. As applications we prove that the mixed GSVindex is equal to the Poincar\'eHopf index of on a Milnor fiber. If also satisfies the strong Milnor condition, i.~e., for every (small enough) the map is a fiber bundle, we prove that the mixed GSVindex is equal to the curvatura integra of defined by CisnerosMolina, Grulha and Seade based on the curvatura integra defined by Kervaire.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Polynomial Real Root Certification using Hermite Matrices over Q
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: Polynomial systems can be solved reliably using numerical homotopy methods. These methods return numerical approximations to solutions, and all the implementations validate the solutions heuristically. Therefore, the output, the approximate solutions of polynomial systems are not certified. Even though the approximate solutions work well in practice, they cannot be used in critical applications, especially in pure mathematics or when high precision is needed (e.g. Surgical Robot arm applications). Let I be a zero dimensional and radical ideal generated by m polynomials with exact rational coefficients. Assume that we are given approximations for the common exact roots. In this talk, we show how to construct and certify the rational entries of Hermite matrices for I from the approximate roots. Furthermore, we represent a method to certify the real roots of the given polynomial system using the signature of Hermite matrices.  Date/ gün: October 26, 15:00

Başlık/Titre/Title: On a special family cyclic codes and their applications
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: Coding theory is a field that allows us to construct methods to transfer and store data in a way that can detect and correct corruptions that may occur during the transmission process. Algebraic coding theory uses algebraic structures to construct these methods. Cyclic codes, which are very useful due to their algebraic properties, have a central importance in algebraic coding theory. madic residue codes are a type of codes that generates cyclic codes with the help of residue classes. After briefly talking about algebraic coding theory, I will describe cyclic codes and madic residue codes. Then, after briefly summarizing the DNA codes, I will explain the relationship between madic residue codes and these codes. Finally, I will talk about quantum codes and explain their relationship with madic residue codes.  Date/ gün: November 02, 15:00

Başlık/Titre/Title: Nonlocal Vibration Analysis of 3D Plates Using RieszCaputo Fractional Derivative.
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: In this study, nonlocal vibration analyzes of 3D plates modeled are performed with the help of fractional mechanics. The RieszCaputo fractional derivative is used to define nonlocality without using kernel functions. The frequency spectrum and mode shapes of the plates are investigated for different fractional derivative orders ($\alpha$) and different length scale parameters (l). The main contributions of these studies are that the nonlocal approach considering fractional analysis give results closer to the experimental results than the classical theory.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Isolated points on Modular Curves
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: One of the oldest areas of mathematics is the study of integer or rational solutions to polynomial equations with integer coefficients and it remains active till today. The most natural question we can ask about such an equation is whether its set of rational solutions is finite or infinite. This can be determined by the genus of the curve defined by such equations. In particular, if the genus is greater than one, there are finitely many rational points on a curve.What happens when one allows for solutions involving squareroots of integers or cubic roots? Perhaps in general all complex numbers that are roots of a degree d polynomial? We call such solutions of degree 2,3 or d in general. In this talk, we will discuss when a curve has infinitely many degree d points focusing particularly on points on modular curves

Başlık/Titre/Title: Characterizing Abelian differentials and pseudoAnosov maps as permutations of integers (You can find the slides of the talk here)
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: Thurston's theory of homeomorphisms from a compact surface of genus greater than one to itself, classifies such maps (and their mapping classes) into three types: periodic, pseudoAnosov, or reducible  where the surface decomposes into pieces on which the restrictions of the map are either periodic or pseudoAnosov. The pseudoAnosov case is thus of great interest in studying these maps. In this case, an integrable quadratic holomorphic differential exists on the surface w.r.t. a Riemann surface structure. When the foliations of the quadratic differential are orientable, namely when there is an Abelian differential preserved by the map, we will characterize the structure of the surface and the pseudoAnosov map in terms of a permutation of integers.

Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: We prove a conjecture of MorierGenoud and Ovsienko that says that rank polynomials of the distributive lattices of lower ideals of fence posets are unimodal. We do this by introducing a related class of circular fence posets and proving a stronger version of the conjecture due to McConville, Sagan and Smyth. We show that the rank polynomials of circular fence posets are symmetric and conjecture that unimodality holds except in some particular cases. We also apply the recent work of Elizalde, Plante, Roby and Sagan on rowmotion on fences and show many of their homomesy results hold for the circular case as well (joint work with Mohan Ravichandran).

Başlık/Titre/Title: Teaching proofs to a computer (You can find the slides of the talk here)
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: We all know about computer algebra packages like Maple or Matlab, which can be used to do calculations. But there are other computer programs called things like Coq or Lean or Isabelle/HOL, which can be used to check or generate mathematical proofs. Such systems have existed for decades but it is only recently that the research mathematical community have begun to take them seriously. I will give an overview of what has been happening over the last few years, and also why I think it might begin to matter to our community. I don't think that computers will be automatically proving the Riemann Hypothesis any time soon, but I do think that maybe they will soon be able to help us with our research, in areas where Maple and Matlab are no use. I will assume the audience has a basic mathematical background but I will not assume any knowledge of computers or computer proof systems.  Date/ gün: 11 May 15:00

Başlık/Titre/Title: Solving Fermat Type Equations Via Modular Approach
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: The asymptotic Fermat conjecture(AFC) states that for a number field K and for sufficiently large primes, the equation x^p+y^p+z^p=0 has only trivial solutions. The strategy which is referred as the "modular method" to solve the Fermat equation, used by Wiles in his famous proof, can be adapted to attack AFC and its several different generalizations. Similar results are quite rare for other Fermat type equations such as x^p+y^q=z^r although the solutions of this equation have been studied over rationals. In this talk, I will mention some recent asymptotic results for the classical Fermat equation as well as some other Fermat type equations over number fields.

Başlık/Titre/Title: The structure of arbitrary ConzeLesigne systems(You can find the slides of the talk here)
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract: ConzeLesigne systems are abelian measurepreserving dynamical systems which are isomorphic to their second HostKraZiegler factors. These factors (and their versions of higher order) are relevant ?in multiple recurrence and related topics in additive combinatorics (e.g. Szemeredi's theorem). In this talk, we present a structure theorem for ConzeLesigne systems for actions of an arbitrary countable discrete abelian group, describing such systems as an inverse limit of translational systems G/L, where G is a locally compact nilpotent group of nilpotency class 2 and L is a lattice in G. Such structure theorems were previously known in the important special cases of finitely generated abelian groups by work of Conze and Lesigne and direct sums of finite fields by work of Bergelson, Tao, and Ziegler. We will review some of this literature by way of illustrating examples. If time permits, we present an application of our structure theorem to give a qualitative proof of the inverse theorem for the Gowers U^3uniformity norm of an arbitrary finite abelian group via a correspondence principle. This talk is based on work jointly with Shalom and Tao. I will introduce and motivate the topic to a general mathematical audience in the first half of my talk.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Complex Symplectomorphisms, Kahler Geodesics and Representation Theory.
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
The geodesics for the Mabuchi metric on the space H of Kahler metrics on a compact symplectic manifold M correspond to solutions of a homogeneous complex MongeAmpere (HCMA) equation. The space H is an infinite dimensional analogue of the symmetric spaces of noncompact type G_C/G for compact Lie groups G. In H the role of G is being played by the group of Hamiltonian symplectomorphisms. I will describe a method for reducing the relevant Cauchy problem for the HCMA eq with analytic initial data to finding a related Hamiltonian flow followed by a "complexification". For Hamiltonian Gspaces, with Ginvariant Kahler structure, the geodesic corresponding to the norm square of the moment map or its Hamiltonian flow in imaginary time (= gradient flow for the changing metric following the geodesic) leads to the convergence of the holomorphic sections to sections supported on BohrSommerfeld leaves. For M=T*G, starting from the vertical or Schrodinger polarization, one obtains the SegalBargmanHall coherent state transform.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Les presques anneaux.
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
Les presques anneaux trouvent leur origine dans les travaux de Faltings sur la théorie padique de Hodge, où ils fournissent un outil clé pour le preuve de son théorème de presque pureté, qui à son tour est une profonde généralisation d'une observation remontant à l'rticle fondateur de Tate sur les groupes pdivisibles. Plus recemment, les presques anneaux sont devenus le socle sur lequel Scholze a bati sa théorie des anneaux et espaces perfectoides, l'une des plus spectaculaires trouvailles de la géométrie arithmétique des dernières années. Dans mon exposé j'introduirai les presques anneaux et j'essayerai d'expliquer comment ils sont utilisés dans la théorie padique de Hodge et dans la théorie des espaces perfectoides.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Structure de l'arbre à l'infini d'un polynôme à deux variables. (travail commun avec Daniel Daigle, Université de Ottawa)
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
Il s'agit de classifier les polynômes à l'aide de la structure de leur arbre à l'infini. Après avoir rappelé la notion d'arbre àl'infini d'un polynôme àdeux variables, nous introduisons des structures simples dans cet arbre, que nous appelons des peignes. Le résultat principal que nous énonçons est le fait que le nombre de peignes est inférieur ou égal à 1+2g, où g est le genre de la courbe générique. Dans le cas des polynômes rationnels, à l'origine de cette étude, on obtient un arbre qui consiste en un seul peigne. A la fin de l'exposé, nous étudions le cas où il existe des dicritiques de degré 1 et nous retrouvons les arbres des polynômes rationnels simples.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Convolutional, Recurrent and Deep Neural Networks
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
Deep Neural Networks are artificial neural networks with a specific topology belonging to a family of such topologies. Use of many layers with gradually decreasing number of neurons, and use of some specialized prediction and training methods are characteristic of DNNs. Prominent differences between regular ANNs and DNNs consist of highly increased use of layers in specific arrangements, use of specific nonlinear (i.e. ReLU), convolutional or lossy maps to link these layers, and use of specific algorithms (i.e. regularization) to prevent otherwise unexpected problems (i.e. vanishing/exploding gradients) during training. For feature extraction and transformation, each layer uses the output from the previous layer as input in order to learn multiple levels of representations that correspond to different levels of abstraction which forms a hierarchy of concepts. Each layer learns to transform its input data into a slightly more abstract and composite representation; deep learning helps to disentangle these abstractions and pick out which features improve performance. Deep learning architectures are often constructed with a greedy layerbylayer method. Deep learning models are vaguely inspired by information processing and communication patterns in biological nervous systems, but they have too many structural and functional differences from biological brains, which make them incompatible with neuroscience evidences. (latter is a separate field called biologically plausible Spiking Neural Networks) The "deep" in "deep learning" refers to the number of layers through which the data is transformed. Deep learning systems have a substantial credit assignment path (CAP) depth. The CAP is the chain of transformations from input to output; hence it describes potential causal connections between input and output. For feedforward NNs, the depth of the CAP is that of the network; for recurrent NNs a signal may propagate through a layer multiple times, thus CAP depth is potentially unlimited. DNNs are interpreted in terms of the universal approximation theorem and probabilistic inference: For DNNs the universal approximation theorem concerns with information holding the capacity of bounded width, unbounded depth networks. It's been proven that a DNN satisfying some lower bound constraint on layer width can approximate any Lebesgue integrable function. (Lu, Z. et al., 2017 The Expressive Power of Neural Networks) The probabilistic interpretation features inference and optimization concepts; it considers the activation nonlinearity as a cumulative distribution function. This interpretation led to the introduction of dropout as regularizer in NNs.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Toric embedded resolutions of simple singularities via jet schemes.
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
(Joint work with H. Mourtada) Abstract: One of the aim of Nash’ paper on the arcs spaces (1968) was to understand res olutions of singularities via the arcs living on the singular variety; in particular he wanted to give a one to one correspondence between families of arcs and es sential exceptionnal divisors. J.Fernandez de Bobadilla and M.Pe Pereira (2011) have shown that such a bijective correspondence for abstract resolutions of singular surfaces. But the proof does not give a constructive way to get the resolution from the arcs space. With H.Mourtada, we construct an embedded toric resolution of simple singularities from their jets schemes. It is the result I will discuss in the talk.

Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
In this talk we consider a numbertheoretic question that interrelates two group structures. An arithmetic progression sequence on rational numbers carries a pattern that can be imitated in the universe of algebraic planar curves. We start with introducing algebraic curves, with due attention to elliptic curves, then we discuss some of the aspects of the arithmetic on these curves. We dene what we mean by an arithmetic progression sequence within the globe of algebraic planar curves. We then display some of the old and recent developments in the theory. Specically, we discuss the possibilities for the length of these progression sequences. Finally, we present some open questions that currently intrigue researchers.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Almostcommuting varieties with a flag,
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
In the construction of Hamiltonian reductions in symplectic geometry, interesting and rich connections to Hilbert schemes, CalogeroMoser spaces, and rational spherical Cherednik algebras have emerged over the last two decades. A Borel analogue of the classical general linear group construction (realized after a reduction from the cotangent bundle of enhanced GrothendieckSpringer resolutions) potentially opens doors for its connections to isospectral Hilbert schemes, flag Hilbert schemes, and other algebraic varieties, that are important to geometric representation theory, algebraic combinatorics, and quantum topology. Our construction can also be realized by certain quiver flag varieties, appearing in the geometric interplay in quiver Hecke algebras that categorify quantum groups. I will discuss a Borel analogue of the cotangent bundle of the extended general linear Lie algebra, discussing the complete intersection of the zero fiber of a moment map (as conjectured by Thomas Nevins), an enumeration of the irreducible components, and a Borel analog of an almostcommuting scheme appearing in the study of CalogeroMoser systems. No background is necessary and I will give plenty of examples throughout my talk. This is joint with Travis Scrimshaw.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Regarding a weak inverse Galois problem
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
In the works of E. Fried and J. Kollár in 1978 and of M. Fried in 1980, it has been shown that any finite group is the automorphisms group of a finite extension of the field of the rational numbers. This is a positive answer to a weak form of the traditional Inverse Galois Problem of Galois theory, which ask if, whether or not, every finite group G appears as the Galois group of a Galois extension of Q. Since the work of Fried Kollár/Fried, several advances have been made on this weak form. The most recent is from 2017 and is due to E. Paran and F. Legrand who show that this weak form is actually true on any Hilbertian field. In a recent work with François Legrand, we explain how to provide examples on nonHilbertian fields. In particular, we show that for any finite group G there exists a field k on which the weak form of the Inverse Galois Problem is true but such that G is not Galois over k. This result thus shows the gap that exists between the Inverse Galois Problem and its weak form.

Başlık/Titre/Title: Realizability of vector bundles by normal bundles of manifolds
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
Given a Poincaré complex $X$, we say a bundle $\xi$ over $X$ is realized by the normal bundle of a manifold $M$, if $\xi$ is pulled back from the normal bundle of $M$ along a homotopy equivalence $X\rightarrow M$. The problem of determining such bundles over an arbitrary Poincaré complex is a difficult problem and is related to classical problems of surgery theory. In this talk, we will discuss some methods of approaching to this problem and talk about solutions for certain cases of $X$. In particular, we will discuss conditions on bundles over $X$ that guarantee they are realized by normal bundles of manifolds, for $X$ belonging to a certain class of homology spheres.

Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
Categorification is a recent philosophy that aims to enrich current setbased theories by introducing a new layer of morphisms, hence obtaining a category based theory. A classical example is homology theories that recover Euler characteristic through their dimensions, but offer more since one can talk about morphisms between homology groups now. After an introduction to categorification, we will see how this idea was applied to a Heisenberg algebra, through its connection to representation theory of the symmetric group .

Başlık/Titre/Title: A Queer Crystal Structure on Shifted Tableaux
Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
Crystal bases were introduced by Kashiwara in his study of the representation theory of quantized universal enveloping algebras. A crystal graph is a directed, colored graph with vertex set given by the crystal basis and directed edges given by deformations of the Chevalley generators and that encodes information about the corresponding representations and their tensor product. In this joint project with Assaf, we define explicit operators on semistandard shifted tableaux and use Stembridge's characterizationto show that these operators have a crystal structure, giving a new proof that Schur Ppolynomials are Schur positive. We then add queer crystal operators (odd Kashiwara operators) that give the semistandard shifted tableaux of a given shape the structure of a connected queer crystal. We also give axioms for queer regular graphs parallel to Stembridge axioms for type A crystals that give a partial local characterization of queer crystals.

Özet/Résumé/ Abstract
In 1984, I was able to obtain a parametrization of the Boy surface by eliminating the Whitney umbrellas of the Steiner surface using the socalled hyperbolic confluence of pairs of singularities. As a result, the Boy surface appears to be a real algebraic surface of degree six. However, the construction was a mix of geometry, differential topology and singularity theory. In this talk I want to investigate the question in the complex algebraic geometry field. We intend to characterize the Boy surface as an complex algebraic surface subjected to natural conditions.

Titre/Başlık: Fields with Virtually Free Group Action
Abstract/ Özet:
This is joint work with Piotr Kowalski. A Gfield is a field, together with an action of a group G by field automorphisms.
Our purpose is to give an axiomatization of the theory of "generic", i.e. existentially closed Gfields. If such axiomatization for
the class of existentially closed Gfields exists, we call the resulting theory GTCF. If G is the trivial group then GTCF is the theory
of algebraically closed fields, ACF. If G is the group of integers, then GTCF exists and its theory is very well studied ACFA, the theory
of algebraically closed fields with a generic automorphism. It is also known that GTCF exist if G is finite, and G is a finitely generated free group.
A natural generalization of finite groups and free groups is the class of virtually free groups. Our main theorem says that, when G is a finitely generated
virtually free group, then GTCF exists. We also give field theoretic propertied of Gfields.

Abstract/ Özet:
Let G be a finite group, p a prime number and k an algebraically closed field of characteristic p. Modular representation theory of
finite groups aims to understand the blocks of kG which are the indecomposable twosided ideals of the group algebra kG. To achieve this
aim many categorical equivalences between module categories of the block algebras are introduced.Among these, we are concerned with the
stable equivalence of Morita type. In this talk after a brief introduction to the subject, the role of Scott modules in this picture will be discussed.
Then a recent result with a joint work with S. Koshitani among these lines will be presented.

Titre/Başlık: Finite free probability
Abstract/ Özet:
Free probability, introduced by Voiculescu in the early 1980's is a general method to study asymptotic statistics of random matrices.
It also provides a parallel theory of probability with the notion of independence replaced by so called 'freeness'. Research over the the last
three decades has shown the existence of 'free' analogues of results ranging from central limit theorems to the existence of Brownian motion to De Finetti type
theorems in free probability. Freeness however does not exist in finite dimensions and as such free probability is inherently qualitative in the results it yields
for random matrices.In 2015, Adam Marcus proposed a theory called 'finite free probability' that seems capable of providing nonasymptotic results.
There are several questions that are wide open in this new setting and I will mention some current work of mine that seems to clarify at least one of them.

Titre/ Noncommutative Algebraic Geometry on a Leavitt Path Algebra of Polynomial Growth
Abstract/ Özet:
Algebraic Geometry classically studies the geometry of sets given as the solutions to polynomial equations via the commutative algebra of "regular" functions on this set.
According to the GelfandGrothendieck philosophy a commutative ring should be thought of as a ring of functions: Complex valued continuous functions for (locally) compact
Hausdorff topological spaces (GelfandNaimark duality) where the points of the space correspond to maximal ideals; polynomial functions for affine varieties where we need all prime ideals (with the Zariski topology) to keep functoriality.
In Connes's noncommutative geometry noncommutative rings are also regarded as rings of functions.
Now there are several candidates for the "points": maximal ideals, primitive ideals and simple modules (these are equivalent when the ring is commutative).
The general consensus is that there are never enough points (for instance to recover the original ring).
Leavitt Path Algebras are constructed from the geometric data of a di(rected )graph G. A theorem of Alahmadi, Alsulami, Jain and Zelmanov says that they have polynomial growth if and only if the cycles of G are mutually disjoint.
In this case there seem to be enough points (at least for algebraic quantum spheres) after some tweaking of the spectrum (= space of points).
While this is a sequel to the seminar by Ayten Koc, familiarity with that talk is not a prerequisite. Relevant concepts will be (re)defined and graduate students are the target audience.

The aim of this talk is to present the density versions of the Hales–Jewett Theorem and the Carlson–Simpson Theorem.
The Hales–Jewett Theorem is one of the most representing results in Ramsey theory.
Its density version was first proved by H. Furstenberg and Y. Katznelson in 1991 using Ergodic Theory.
However, since then, combinatorial proofs have been discovered. The Density Hales–Jewett Theorem has as a consequence
Szem ´eredi’s Theorem on arithmetic progressions as well as its multidimensional version.
The Density Carlson–Simpson Theorem is an extension of the Density Hales–Jewett Theorem and concerns the space of the left variable words.

Titre/ Başlık:Polyhedral Omega: A new linear Diophantine system solver
Abstract/ Özet: Polyhedral Omega is a new algorithm for solving linear Diophantine systems (LDS), i.e., for computing a multivariate rational function representation of the set of all nonnegative integer solutions to a system of linear equations and inequalities. Polyhedral Omega combines methods from partition analysis with methods from polyhedral geometry. In particular, we combine MacMahon's iterative approach based on the Omega operator and explicit formulas for its evaluation with geometric tools such as Brion decomposition and Barvinok's short rational function representations. In this way, we connect two branches of research that have so far remained separate, unified by the concept of symbolic cones which we introduce. The resulting LDS solver Polyhedral Omega is significantly faster than previous solvers based on partition analysis and it is competitive with stateoftheart LDS solvers based on geometric methods. Most importantly, this synthesis of ideas makes Polyhedral Omega by far the simplest algorithm for solving linear Diophantine systems available to date. This is joint work with Felix Breuer.

Titre/ Başlık: On the topology of real analytic maps
Abstract/ Özet: In this talk we describe a fibration theorem for real analytic maps $f:\mathbb{R}^n\to\mathbb{R}^p$ with arbitrary singularities. Now suppose that $f$ satisfies Thom's property with respect to a Whitney stratification and let $g:\mathbb{R}^n\to\mathbb{R}^k$ be another real analytic map with isolated singularity at the origin in the stratified sense. We give a LeGreuel type formula which relates the EulerPoincaré characteristic of the fibres of $f$ and $(f,g)$. When $f$ and $(f,g)$ are isolated complete intersections we construct an integer valued invariant called the curvatura integra which gives the Euler characteristic of the fibres.

Titre/ Başlık: Minimal generators of toric ideals associated to numerical semigroups spanned by four positive integers
Abstract Özet: Let a1, . . . , a4 be positive integers with gcd(a1, . . . , a4) = 1, and S =< a1, . . . , a4 > be the numerical semigroup generated by a1, . . . , a4. In this talk we determine a minimal binomial generating set for the toric ideal associated to S. Our approach is based on the detection of those binomials and monomials that have to appear in every system of binomial generators of the toric ideal; these special binomials and monomials are called indispensable in the literature.

Titre/ başlık: Some Problems and A Possible Conjecture On HalfIntegral Weight Modular Forms
Résumé/Özet: By the celebrated work of G. Shimura, our knowledge on modular forms of halfintegral weight has started to grow. Like in the case of integral weight, they also have arithmetic significance, so both have attracted attention for many years. Recently, one of the breakthrough and very significant results in pure mathematics is the proof of the SatoTate conjecture for nonCM modular eigenforms of integral weight (even for Hilbert eigenforms) by Taylor, BarnetLamb, Geraghty and Harris. A special case of the SatoTate theorem states that signs of coefficients of integral weight Hecke eigenforms are equidistributed. That such should also be the case for halfintegral weight forms was conjectured by Kohnen and Bruinier. In this talk, we will discuss the motivation behind this question and explain how the Shimura lift and the SatoTate theorem can be exploited to obtain sign equidistribution for certain subsets of the coefficients of halfintegral weight eigenforms. Finally, we are interested in the following question: Is it possible state a conjecture like SatoTate in the case of halfintegral weight modular forms where the question is much more complicated. We will conclude with reporting recent developments on this problem.

Résumé/Özet:An open Riemann surface is called parabolic in case every bounded subharmonic function on it reduces to a constant. Several authors introduced seemingly different analogs of this notion for complex manifolds of arbitrary dimension. In the first part of this expository talk, I will compile these notions of parabolicity, compare them and look at some examples. Then I will relate some of these notions to the linear topological type of the Fréchet space of global analytic functions on the given Stein manifold. This will allow us to look at these notions from functional analysis point of view. Finally, I will consider “polynomials” on Sparabolic manifolds and report on some general results about these objects.

Titre/ başlık: Nonlinear Eigenvalue Problems with Specified Eigenvalues
Résumé/Özet: Nonlinear eigenvalue problems have drawn substantial interest in the last two decades in numerical analysis. An important concept regarding them is the backward error, that is how much one has to perturb them so that a specified scalar becomes an eigenvalue. Here we consider the following more general question: given an analytic matrixvalued function, where is a nearest one possessing a set of prescribed eigenvalues located? We derive a singular value optimization characterization for such nearest matrixvalued functions with respect to the operator norm induced by the l2 norm. Our derivation benefits from the root canonical form for a nonlinear eigenvalue problem (generalization of the Jordan canonical from), generalized Sylvester operators, as well as tools from complex analysis.

Titre/ başlık: Geometry of oscillating integrals and Dubrovin conjecture
Résumé/Özet: We consider the oscillating integral defined by the polynomial phase function f(x) with nondegenerate singular points. So called « Lefschetz thimble» can be constructed for each singular point of f(x). This integral can be regarded as Laplace transform of the fibre integral associated to the nonsingular variety f^{1}(c). It turns out (F .Pham) that the intersection indices of vanishing cycles of the variety f^{1}(c) coincide with those of Lefschetz thimbles (regarded as one dimension higher cycles in a relative homology). We show that the elements of the Stokes matrix defined for the oscillating integral calculates exactly the intersection indices mentioned above.
As an application we shall discuss the question on the Stokes matrix S for the quantum cohomology of weighted projective space pour P. Namely we shall present a positive answer to the hypothesis proposed by Boris Dubrovin who predicted that the Stokes matrix S coïncide coincides with the Gram matrix of the exceptional collection of coherent sheaves on P. This is a collaboration with Kazushi Ueda.

Titre/ başlık: Stable processes and bounded L^p operators
Résumé/Özet: There is a strong connection between Analysis and Probability Theory. The classical results of Analysis can be obtained by using tools of Martingale Theory, and Brownian motion as the underlying process. Brownian motion is a very specific L\'evy process which embraces many ``nice" properties where these properties allows one to reproduce probabilistic alternatives of classical tools. On the other hand, it is possible to study more general L\'evy processes with some cost.\\ In this talk, we will discuss the question that to what extent we can generalise this process provided that the connection with Analysis is not lost. We will consider some results on bounded linear operators on $L^p(\mathbb{R}^d)$ when the underlying process is taken to be the symmetric stable process which shares some fundamental properties of Brownian motion. We will argue the tools obtained by means of this more general process, and define a new class of harmonic functions to work with. We will also provide a Harnack's Inequality for this new class of harmonic functions.  Date/ gün: 15 octobre (Mercredi) 15:00

Abstract/Özet: I will describe briefly constructions of families of projective quotients of Hilbert schemes of curves and their applications both as logcanonical models of the moduli space of stable curves and as moduli spaces in their own right for new classes of curves. Because a degree parameter that could be taken ''sufficiently large'' in prior constructions must be fixed to go further, classical asymptotic methods for analysing stability are no longer effective. After reviewing this setup, I will outline a new method, joint with David Swinarski, for analysing stability in fixed degree for very special varieties, and conclude by explaining how the method is applied in recent work of Jarod Alper, Maksym Fedorchuk and David Smyth.

There are amazingly open questions concerning these representations. But recently there has been some progress. In particular, we determined all linear characters of SL(2,O) and we applied the general theory of Weil representations of locally compact abelian groups invented by Weil to generate interesting family of representations of SL(2,O) which possibly contain all finite dimensional representations of SL(2,O) of finite image."

Titre/ başlık: Uniform Versions of the MordellLang Conjecture for Multiplicative Groups
Abstract/Özet: The MordellLang Conjecture (MLC) concerns finitely generated subgroups of abelian varieties, however, there are analogous statements in the "noncompact" case: namely the case of the (cartesian powers of) multiplicative group, G_m. (Sometimes, MLC is formulated for semiabelian varieties to include this case.) In very heuristic terms, in the multiplicative group case, MLC says "the addition doesn't give new information about finitely generated multiplicative groups of fields." (This will be made clear in this talk.) We isolate the conlusion of MLC as an abstract property for subgroups of G_m. It turns out that many groups other than finitely generated ones have this property. Moreover, some of them satisfy a uniform version of it. Vaguely, this corresponds to the function field field case of MLC. In this talk, after making everything above more accurate, we prove that certain finitely generated groups have this "uniform" MordellLang Property.

Titre/ başlık: Black Box Groups
Abstract/Özet: Black box groups are introduced as an idealised setting for randomised al gorithms for solving permutation and matrix group problems in computational group theory. A black box group G is a finite group whose elements are encoded as 01 strings of uniform length and the group operations are performed by an oracle ('black box'). Given strings representing g, h in G, the black box can compute the strings representing gh, g^{1} and decide whether g = h. In this context, a natural task is to find a probabilistic algorithm which determines the isomorphism type of a group within given (arbitrarily small) probability of error. More desirable algorithms, called constructive recognition algorithms, are the ones producing an isomorphism between a black box copy of a finite group and its natural copy.
A simple observation on the recognition algorithms in black box group theory is that procedures are based on checking whether some first order formulae satisfied by the given black box group. I will focus on this observation and discuss constructive recognition of black box groups of Lie type. Along the way, I will explain how we define a standard Frobenius automorphism in a black box group isomorphic to (P)SL(2, q) and construct (or interpret) of a black box field in black box groups using only black box group operations. If time permits, I will talk about the interpretation of inverse transpose map and graph automorphisms, and the corresponding constructions in the black box groups of Lie type.
This is a joint work with Alexandre Borovik.

Title/ başlık: Comovement between stock and bond return in Turkey.
We try to determine the relation between stock returns and changes in interest rates and attribute this relation to one of two competing hypotheses: similarity in valuation methods implying a negative relation and need for a portfolio reallocation implying a positive correlation. We find a negative correlation (0.33), hence support the first hypothesis. However, this correlation has weakened in the period after the subprime crisis of 2007 (0.37 vs. 0.28). Interestingly, sharp decreases in interest rates are associated with high positive correlations while sharp increases are associated with high negative correlations. This reveals an asymmetry in the relation between stock and bond returns. We also find that some sectorial indices have different sensitivities to interest rate changes.

Titre/ başlık: Valued Difference Fields
Resumé/özet: To a valued field one can canonically associate its residue field and value group. It is natural to ask the following question: if two valued fields have "similar" valued groups and "similar" residue fields how much are they similar as valued fields? For example, (Q_p,v_p) and (F_p((t)), v_t) have the same residue field (F_p) same and the value group (Z) and AxKochen and Ershov theorem establish a "tight" similarity between this two fields that answers a conjecture of Artin. I will discuss the analogous situation where the valued fields in question are respectively equipped by distinguished automorphisms.  Date/gün: April 22 and 29, 2013 14.00

Titre/Başlık: An extension of Schubert polynomials for connected Ktheory using algebraic cobordism.
Abstract/Özet: Given a suitably generic morphism of vector bundles over a smooth scheme X, the Chow ring fundamental classes of the degeneracy loci can be expressed by means of the double Schubert polynomials. This result has an exact analogue in K^0(X), the Grothendieck ring of algebraic vector bundles over X, provided one replaces the double Schubert polynomials with the double Grothendieck polynomials. In this talk I will illustrate the common framework existing behind this two results and how it can be transported to algebraic cobordism, the universal oriented cohomology theory. I will also explain how this approach allows, in the universal case of a full flag bundle, to extend the result to connected Ktheory, a cohomology theory that dominates both CH and K^0, leading to the definition of a family of polynomials generalizing both Schubert and Grothendieck polynomials.

Abstract: It is well known that any permutation w in the symmetric group Sn can be represented as the product of some finite adjacent transpositions si = (i; i + 1) where the index i runs from 1 to n  1. Among all such representations the ones which uses the minimum number of generators are called reduced representations for w. The notion of reduced words has been catching high attention, because of their appearances in many areas that algebraic combinatorics interferes. In this talk, we introduce a new combinatorial object ”tower tableaux" together with the ”sliding algorithm" which appears as an important tool for studying reduced words in many aspects.

Title/başlık: Hirota type discretization
Abstract/özet : The integrable discretizations of the problems in rigid body dynamics are a vast undeveloped area of study. Certainly, the most famous ones are the three integrable cases of the rotation of a heavy rigid body around a fixed point in a homogeneous gravity field, named after Euler, Lagrange and Kowalevski. Recent studies for the integrable discrete systems show us the conspicuous relationships in unrelated areas of research such as numerical algorithms, discrete geometry, cellular automaton, quantum integrable systems and algebraic geometry tools. One of these studies, Bobenko and Suris, use Poisson construction of discretizations which gives implicit equations of motion. In this talk, we give a very different discretization method, called Hirota type discretization, using the bilinear transformation method and obtain explicit equations of motion. We give Hirota discretization of the motion of a rigid body with a fixed center of mass named Euler Top.  Gün: 10 Mayıs (Perşembe) 16:00

Elle nourrit également de questionnements une communauté croissante de chercheurs confrontant informaticiens et mathématiciens issus de spécialités diverses (probabilités, statistique mathématique, géométrie convexe, optimisation) autour d'une thématique commune.

Title/Başlık: Cohomology of Bianchi Groups
Abstract/Özet: Bianchi groups are groups of the form SL(2,R) where R is the ring of integers of an imaginary quadratic field. They arise naturally in the study of hyperbolic 3manifolds and of certain generalizations of the classical modular forms (called Bianchi modular forms) for which they assume the role of the classical modular group SL(2,Z). In this latter sense, the study of Bianchi groups is fundamental for developing Langlands' programme for GL(2) beyond totally real fields.
The overall goal of this talk is to give the audience an overview of some of the fundamental problems in the arithmetic aspects of the theory of Bianchi groups. After giving the necessary background, I will start with a discussion of the problem of understanding the behavior of the dimensions of the cohomology of Bianchi groups and their congruence subgroups. Next, I will focus on the amount of the torsion that one encounters in the cohomology . Finally, I will discuss the arithmetic significance of these torsion classes.  Gün: 10 Nisan (Salı) 16:00

Due to the great flexibility of graphs used as a modeling tool, the theoretical results obtained in network science are used in numerous applied sciences, including biology, physics, computer science, economy, human sciences, etc.
In this presentation, we will first briefly describe the emergence of this relatively new field, and present its goals. We will then introduce its main concepts, and the most important results obtained in this field. We will also use a few realworld examples to illustrate what these results practically mean and show their scope. Finally, we will present the open questions currently at the center of the attention in this field.  Gün: 3 Nisan (Salı) 16:00

Başlık/Title: Free Divisors and Painlevé Equations after M. Kato
Özet/Abstract: First of all, I will explain the definition of free divisors and that of systems of uniformization equations with singularities along such hypersurfaces which are examples of holonomic systems. These two notions are formulated by K. Saito around 1970's.
Then I restrict my attention to the case of hypersurfaces of an affine three dimensional space. I will show some examples of free divisors in this case and uniformization equations.
It turns out that the systems of uniformization equations are closely related with Painlevé equation and its algebraic solutions. Typical examples of free divisors are hypersurface defined by the discriminant of real and complex reflection groups. Recently M. Kato (Univ. of Ryukyus) clarified the relationship between systems of uniformization equations with singularities along the discriminant sets of reflection groups of rank three and algebraic solutions of Painlevé equation. In my talk I will take a survey of free divisors, uniformization equations, and discuss topics related with the results of M. Kato.  Gün: 13 Mart (Salı) 16:00

Başlık/Title: Standard group embeddings and divided differences operators.
Özet/Abstract: Briefly speaking, a standard group embedding is a normal projective compactification of a reductive group. They can all be obtained as certain projectivizations of reductive monoids. A complete combinatorial description of the equivariant cohomology of rationally smooth embeddings (a subclass that includes smooth and certain singular varieties), has been obtained in previous work by the author. An interesting open problem is to find an explicit set of polynomial generators for the various cohomology rings thus obtained. In this introductory talk, I will provide a survey of these topics and show how Newton's divided difference operators (and Schubert calculus) could be effectively used to solve the abovementioned problem.

Özet/Abstract The main focus of this talk will be finitely determinacy of multi valued holomorphic mapgerms with respect to the RightLeft equivalence. By J. Mather's results, finite determinacy can be characterised geometrically. An important tool for studying the geometry of maps is the notion of multiple point spaces. The kth multiple point space of a finite map between topological spaces is the closure of the set of ktuple points having the same image under the map and distinct components. In this talk, I shall discuss how to get algebraic criteria for finite determinacy of mapgerms of any corank from 3space to 4space using multiple point spaces and demonstrate it with examples.

Başlık /Title  Asymptotics on codes and on curves over finite fields.
Özet/Abstract The famous bound of HasseWeil for the number of rational points on curves over finite fields (equivalent to the Riemann Hypothesis in this context) was shown by Ihara to be weaker as the genus of the curve grows. For a finite field with q elements, Ihara then introduced the quantity A(q) that controls the asymptotic behaviour of the number of rational points as the genus goes to infinity.To deal with A(q) one is led to consider infinite towers of algebraic curves and to study their limits for the ratios of (number of rational points) / (genus). We are going to motivate this interesting mathematical subject by its connection to the asymptotics in Coding Theory, which is a result due to TsfasmanVladutZink based on a construction of Goppa of linear codes from algebraic curves over finite fields.

Title/Başlık : Entanglement Swapping Model of DNA Replication
Abstract/Özet: Molecular biology explains function of molecules by their geometrical and electronical structures which are mainly determined by utilization of quantum effects in chemistry. However,further quantum effects are not thought to play any significant role in the essential processes of life. On the contrary, consideration of quantum circuits/protocols and organic molecules as software and hardware of living systems that are cooptimized during evolution, may be useful to pass over the dfficulties raised by biochemical complexity and to understand the physics of life.
In this talk, I will describe a quantum mechanical model of DNA replication with a reliable qubit representation of the nucleotides. In the model: 1) molecular recognition of a nucleotide is assumed to trigger an intrabase entanglement corresponding to a superposition of different tautomer forms and 2) pairing of complementary nucleotides is described by swapping intrabase entanglements with interbase entanglements. I will give some examples of quantum circuits/protocols to be used to obtain intrabase and interbase entanglements. Lastly, possible computational and experimental verification methods of the model will be discussed.  Gün: 3 Kasım 2011 (Perşembe) 16:00

A Schwarz map of Appell's F_2 whose monodoromy group is related to the reflection group of type D_4.
Abstract. The system of differential equations for Appell's hypergeometric function F_2(a,b,b',c,c';x,y) has four fundamental solutions. Let u_1,u_2,u_3,u_4 be such solutions. If the monodromy group of the system is finite, the closure of the image of the Schwarz map U(x,y)=(u_1(x,y),u_2(x,y),u_3(x,y),u_4(x,y)) is a hypersurface S of the 3dimensional projective space {\bf P}$. Then S is defined by P(u_1,u_2,u_3,u_4)=0 for a polynomial P(t_1,t_2,t_3,t_4). It is M. Kato (Univ. Ryukyus) who determined the parameter a,b,b',c,c' such that the monodromy group of the system for F_2(a,b,b',c,c';x,y) is finite. It follows from his result that such a group is the semidirect product of an irreducible finite reflection group G of rank four by an abelian group. In this talk, we treat the system for F_2(a,b,b',c,c';x,y) with (a,b,b',c,c')=(1/2,1/6,1/6,1/3,2/3. In this case, the monodromy group is the semidirect group of G by Z/3Z, where G is the reflection group of type D_4. The polynomial P(t_1,t_2,t_3,t_4) in this case is of degree four. There are 16 ordinary singular points in the hypersurface S. In the rest of my talk, I explain the background of the study.  Lundi 21 mars 2011, 15h0016h00, salle FEF 7.

Equisingularity in complex surfaces.
Abstract. We explain the equivalence for complex surfaces between Whitney regularity and Zariski equisingularity criterion. We will give some applications such as the fact that any surface Whitney regular along its singular locus has a smooth normalisation.  Lundi 28 février 2011, 15h0016h00, salle P 23.

The problem of cohomology for an Arakelov divisor.
Abstract. We shall discuss Tate's RiemannRoch theorem for number fields and the peculiar nature that it implies for the cohomology of an Arakelov divisor (that is, a divisor for the spectrum of a number field formally completed at archimedean infinity).

Quelques mots de théorie des modèles.
Abstract. Le but de l'exposé est de faire voir un peu de théorie des modèles. J'ai choisi de présenter un théorème de Macintyre (de 1971) disant qu'un corps omegastable est soit fini, soit algébriquement clos. Après avoir dit ce qu'est une théorie, ou un modèle, et énoncé quelques questions typiques que se posent habituellement les logiciens, je rappelerai deux invariants des espaces topologiques compacts dénombrables qui permettent de les classifier à homéomorphisme près, avant de donner une preuve du théorème de Macintyre, allégée grâce à des arguments de Poizat. L'exposé devrait être accessible à tous.  Mercredi 24 novembre 2010, 17h1518h15, salle FEF 9.

Invariants of hypergeometric groups for CalabiYau complete intersections in weighted projective spaces
Abstract. Let Y be a smooth CalabiYau complete intersection in a weighted projective space. We show that the space of quadratic invariants of the hypergeometric group associated with the mirror manifold of Y in the sense of Batyrev and Borisov is onedimensional and spanned by the Gram matrix of a classical generator of the derived category of coherent sheaves on Y with respect to the Euler form. This is a confirmation of an expected consequence of the homological mirror symmetry conjecture by Kontsevitch.  Vendredi 5 novembre 2010, 10h12h, salle P 19.

Pseudoholomorphic curves and applications
Abstract. Pseudoholomorphic curves are important objects by their role in different subjects such as symplectic or contact geometry. I will present recent results on the study of almost complex manifolds, concerning the (non)existence of pseudoholomorphic curves and more generally of pseudoholomorphic maps.

Géométrie et calcul infinitésimal. Séminaire introductif à destination des étudiants
Abstract. J'essaierai de montrer les liens entre la géométrie classique, notamment la construction à la règle et au compas, et les premières études sur le calcul différentiel. Je montrerai aussi l'évolution de la géométrie euclidienne vers d'autres géométries.
